Abstract

In September 1983 IIASA, together with the Austrian Government, the World Resources Institute and UNESCO, supported an International Study Conference on the Sensitivity of Ecosystems and Society to Climatic Change, which was cosponsored by the World Meteorological Organization, UNEP, and the International Council of Scientific Unions.

The purpose of this meeting, which was attended by scientists from 17 countries, was to evaluate the impact of climatic fluctuations on the sensitive margins of agriculture and of natural terrestrial ecosystems. The emphasis was on climatic change that might result from increases in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, but consideration was also given to past climatic fluctuations, both short- and long-term. This report is a summary of deliberations by participants in the workshop, of the observations that emerged, and of the recommendations made.
